The story of the Hebrews starts with Abraham. Abraham is believed to be “the father of many nations” (NIV, Genesis 17:5).

A STUDY ON ISAIAH 9:1-7 BY DIANIA SPORISKY A STUDY ON ISAIAH 9:1-7 The Bible comforts and reminds those of us who have come to trust in Jesus Christ not to despair as if there was no hope. We have the revelation of our Lord that not only announces His sovereign reign but also charts the course of world events. One of the most significant revelations is found in Isaiah 9. Against the background of the prophecy of war and destruction, darkness and gloom (chapter 8) Isaiah gave this prophecy about the Messiah—the glorious coming king. “Messiah” is a Hebrew term that means “anointed one,” that is, the anointed king.
Barnes in Cooke, Barnes & Roberts (2003) writes that “sacraments take us out of ordinary or profane life to discover the drama or beauty of the divine” (p77) and thus experience Jesus. To understand the changes in sacramental theology and how it is impacted by Jesus’ presence, it important to examine the history of the church, it’s scriptures and the development of its traditions as these form the basis of the belief held by the Church and it’s followers (Boersma, 2011) . In the beginnings of our sacramental theology it was easy for believers to witness Jesus inthe sacraments. He participated in the lives of the community. He was “the sacrament of God.”(De Gidio, 1994,) The gospels and parables show how he led both his disciples and community by his example.
Research Question: Compare and contrast the Christian views of salvation versus the Islam views of salvation. With much candour and respect given to religion and the study of religion, over the years, humankind has searched for the need to belong and be a part of something big. Salvation is that which has brought the commencement of such an activity. The word salvation is one taken from the Latin word salvatio; the Greek word sōtēria and the Hebrew yeshu'ah. The significant connection in all three words is in its meaning, which the Oxford Dictionary has defined thoroughly, “preservation or deliverance from harm, ruin, or loss; deliverance from sin and its consequences.” The essence therefore is to be saved, salvaged, or redeemed.
The record of the Lord’s Prayer has been recorded by Matthew and Luke in their account of Jesus Christ. This model of prayer has been part of Christian liturgy and tradition from the very beginning of Christendom. This model of prayer by Jesus Christ has been seen of underline the very theological mission and life of Jesus. Our Father who art in heaven The opening of the prayer, “Our Father who art in heaven” reflects Jesus’ own style of addressing God and which therefore also indicates Jesus’ intention that his disciples should share in his own sense of intimate sonship to God as Father. Jesus in the account of the four Gospels is seen to teach that God is our Father and seeks that kind of relationship with us.
BIBL 110 B09 9/18/2014 Biblical Worldview Essay The book of Romans is a story that tells us more about how God wants his people to live in the ages of sin without partaking in actions that are not within the Gospel. The Christian lifestyle is broken into many different aspects in life. These different views consist of the natural world, our identity as disciples of the lord, the relationships that we partake in and even our culture of life. The many things that we can participate in our daily lives is exactly where we need to put our focus in. This is where the reference of Romans comes into play.
Values have a rich and detailed history, and the social work profession has its roots in the Bible and religion. Values and what they mean to each person are unique for everyone. Values tend to influence attitudes and behaviour. The Elizabethan Poor Laws of 1598 and 1601 consolidated welfare legislation of the Tudor period and have their origins in the systems of relief provided to the poor by the parishes of the Church of England. The Beveridge Report of 1942 declared a ‘War on Want’ to address structural problems and an emerging class of welfare professionals developed in what we might call ‘traditional social work’.
